Polish town of Lodz is starting the urban complex train project

A project which will see Lodz’s train transportation system cover the town itself and the surrounding towns has just been launched. The call for the tender is on. 20 new rail buses will be purchased and modernisation of the railway stations and stops will be undertaken.

The project “Lódzka Kolej Aglomeracyjna” (LKA or Agglomeration Railway of Lodz) covers modernisation of the existing railway lines, construction of 8 new railway stops and renovation or extension of 9 existing ones. 20 new electric rail buses and railcars will be purchased. Also planned is the improvement of other means of transport infrastructure, such as organising convenient connectivity at the railway stops by constructing bus stops, Park&Ride car parks and Bike&Ride utilities. The project covers the service and maintenance background for the new and existing rolling stock.
The project is part of a larger scale strategy of organising a circular line and an underground line that will run along the central part of the town, making a full integration of the trains with trams and other means of transport concentrated in the city centre of Lodz.

It is estimated that potential rail users can increase by 65% after the project implementation and the quality of commuting can be improved as well. Negotiations are being carried out on the integration of the ticketing system too. The first new rail buses should start running in early 2014 and all the works should be completed by 2015. The cost of the LKA project is around €75 million (300 million PLN). The budget is co-supported by the European Union.
